Description

Eenie Meanie Beanie Weeny  was the first tune Rich wrote when he realized he wanted to put together a funk/jazz band. This is also the chart that got him started (with a vengeance) dovetailing the rhythm instrument figures with the horn lines and starting to think a little more like Horace Silver when it comes to arranging for a small jazz band. And if that wasn’t enough, this is also Rich’s debut as a lyricist; you can hear him sing this tune in the sound clip below.

330 written measures, ♩ = 200, level of difficulty is intermediate to advanced. The solo changes are a sort of long-form minor blues that are fairly easy for blowing. There is a soli section with one particularly tricky figure that might take some wood-shedding for most mortal musicians.

Written with solo space for four soloists and can easily be opened up for even more soloists.
